ioki's on-demand platform offers a solution for every environment

Roche runs on-demand factory transport

Working with the Roche corporation, we created a unique pilot project for an employee shuttle with a timetable built around pre-existing rail services. The results underscore the advantages of on-demand mobility for the company's workforce, its operations and its sustainability plans. The integrated concept even convinced car users of the benefits of public transport.

Overseen by DB Regio Mitte, Roche and ioki, trial runs for the service started in spring 2019 with a user group of commuters from Lampertheim who work at Roche in Mannheim.

  • When disembarking at Mannheim-Waldhof station, they were met by a waiting shuttle (ordered) that brought them to the gates of the Roche plant. 
  • Approx. 450 journeys were made within a 6-week period.
  • Using the German school grades system of 1-6 (1 = highest, 6 = lowest), the users gave the integrated service an average grade of 1.7. 
“Employee transport from ioki makes it easy to organise travel needs within the context of work. It’s also sustainable and takes people’s personal mobility requirements into account, such as a young dad going to the playschool or staff member who doesn’t have a car of her own.
